CC Sabathia Diagnosed With Degenerative Knee Condition



Further bad news for the Yankees Ace CC Sabathia, as he’s been diagnosed with a degenerative condition in the cartilage of his right knee.

Yankees GM, Brian Cashman, made the announcement on Wednesday, days after CC was placed on the DL. Sabathia sought Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion, where he received the diagnosis and a cortisone shot with stemcells. This is the same knee where Sabathia tore his meniscus back in 2010.

As for the condition itself, it’s a common one among older players, which can definitely be played with–surgery can also be an option. Weird sight seeing the former workhorse that was CC Sabathia literally deteriorate slowly.
